Power electronics is a diverse and multi-disciplinary field with constant opportunities to grow, change, and try new techniques to push the envelope. Immediately following the importance of hardware improvement is working on the algorithms controlling the switches. There are many controllers used in the field, all with their own unique benefits and drawbacks. This document will study the feasibility of adding the "Take-Back-Half" algorithm to the ranks of controllers utilized. This algorithm is a non-linear modification to the PI controller with potential benefits in speed and stability.
